Halloween Time

Halloween was so much fun! I think it is more fun when you have a child to dress up and take trick or treating! Ashlyn was a little Fairy Pirncess. We went trick or treating with my sister and her kids, and my brother and his kids, we had a great time they all looked so cute in their costumes. She wasn't sure what all the fuss was about, but when we started going door to door and people kept giving her candy it didn't take her long to catch on. Pretty soon she was wanting to walk by herself and hold her bucket by herself, she carried her bucket like she carries her purses, almost on her shoulder, and she would excitedly "run" to each house. It was so so cute to see! She started to sing and giggle while we where walking to each house. I could tell she was having the time of her life. I remember looking down at her and thinking "This is what life is all about!!!" It was so much fun to see the joy on her face everytime someone gave her candy. Although she wanted to eat it as soon as they put it in her bucket and it didn't make her very happy when I told her no. I did give her some to pacify her but after that all she wanted to do was eat the candy. She had a blast and so did I. Unfortunately, Matt was hunting and he wasn't able to come with us.
On Friday night Matt and I went to a Halloween Party at our friends, Jarvis and Mandi's house. Matt went as Austin Powers and I went as his "lady". Matt did a really good job getting into the character. He was always saying "Groovy Baby"!! It was so funny. We also won the Costume contest, which I was really surprised about because there were some really great costumes there. We ate and played some fun games we were there until about 12:30 am. We had an awesome time.

Ashlyn loved carrying her own bucket!
